    Well, the question may be easy. I have iPAD, I upgraded it to iOS7, I configured activation lock on it.
    Now it has been stolen. I of course turned on the lost mode.
    The question is, whether this activation lock may be suppressed - for example if thief will try to downgrade the iPAD to iOS 6 or, when they will break in (for example by guessing the password or by using the traces left by fingers on the surface) and_ after the password is guessed, try to deactivate lock

    Many thanks in advance

    The thieves probably didn't know about the activation lock. Supposedly even Apple can't get past it if you forget your Apple ID password. If they guess your four digit passcode, they could possibly attempt to turn off Find My iPhone but they would need to know your Apple ID password for that not just the passcode.

    Apple is no longer signing IOS 6 and that is why. Karen pretty much hit it on the head so I don't think the OP has much to worry about except the loss of his iPad - (Speaking to the OP) and you can remote wipe it and use iCloud to track and find it if you set everything up to do so.
